Lands' End Canvas Shorts in Seersucker

After a solid 5 days of rain which our lawn desperately needed, back to warm summery weather. That means, bring out the shorts!

I used to wear shorts all the time. Short shorts. But as I'm getting older, the length of my shorts is getting longer. The Bermuda shorts I got from J. Crew factory are suitable to wear to work. But for short shorts, 5" is the shortest I can get.

Last weekend, Land's End Canvas had a great deal on shorts. $12 and free shipping. Can't miss out on those. But I was a bit late in the game as the color I wanted was out of stock during the sale (now it is back)


V neck tee from Abercrombie & Fitch

The color I wanted first is the navy blue stripes but the red stripes are very nice too. It is back to its original price of $45 now. 

I have to say these shorts are extremely comfortable. They are a bit short IMO for myself but not too too short to wear out. I don't know how many pairs of shorts I bought before that are just appropriate to wear inside the house. 

If these shorts go on sale soon again, I would no doubt pick up the navy stripes as well. 

**currently(sorry expired June 7), they are running a sale on dresses, all $34 for a limited time, 20% promo code(code ICECREAM, PIN 1040) in addition, check out here **

    1. I'm more brave in picking colorful bottoms now. Still conscious so I try to pair it with neutral tops.

  4. The red stripes are great and navy will be a closet staple forever so I don blame you for wanting to pick up a second pair. ;)

    1. I wouldn't go grab one if it's on regular price ($45) but if they go on sale, definitely pick the navy stripes up.

  5. So cute! I was wondering about sizing but sounds like my normal J Crew short size would be comparable.

    1. I find LEC sizing a bit bigger than J. Crew. I am between a 4 and 6 for J. Crew but always size down with LEC.

  6. What an amazing deal from Lands End! I think the shorts are a very good length. I've decided that a 3 inch inseam is a good length for me, but no shorter.

  9. I just got these shorts today! I wanted the navy striped one too but I do like the red stripes. They are very comfy and I love the texture. The length is a bit short on me, but I agree that it's not too short to wear out. Thanks for posting!

    1. oh you too? Hopefully when the next sale comes on, there are still the navy ones left. I love the fabric as they would not get wrinkly and save me from ironing :)

    1. As I get more " germaphobic" as I get older, even if I had the body to pull off, I hate the feeling of my thighs rubbing chairs in restaurants, so the longer the shorts, it's better :)
